In 3 bullets, summarize why this company deserves recognition:

Waratek has pioneered the RASP approach to security that protects new and legacy applications without the need to make any code changes or impacting application performance.

Waratek delivers out of the box protection against most severe known vulnerabilities as well as unknown attacks.

The newest version of Waratek’s product automatically modernizes any web application that is running on a legacy version of Java such that it inherits all of the security and performance improvements associated with Java 8 without changing even one line of code or performing a restart.

In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category

Waratek has innovated a disruptive new approach to application security called runtime application self-protection (RASP). This approach renders enterprise applications self-protecting. Waratek provides transparent RASP containers for web applications deployed in datacenters and cloud environments and delivers out of the box protection against most severe known vulnerabilities and unknown attacks. Waratek’s unique virtualization-based approach eliminates the need for enterprises to re-write or modify their applications and does not meaningfully impact the performance of the application – all while protecting enterprise applications and data from logic attacks like SQL Injection, network attacks and unpatched vulnerabilities in legacy application platforms, third party and open source code, and effectively countering Zero Day malware.

The company continues to innovate. The newest version of Waratek’s product automatically modernizes any web application that is running on a legacy version of Java such that it inherits all of the security and performance improvements associated with Java 8 without changing even one line of code or performing a restart.

The company’s approach is validated by leading analyst firm Gartner. According to Gartner Inc.’s Top 10 Security Predictions 2016, by 2020, 40 percent of enterprises will secure developed applications by adopting application security self-testing, self-diagnosing and self-protection technologies. Gartner recommends companies adopt runtime application self protection (RASP).

The company is also being recognized by its peers in cyber security. The company was named RSA Conference 2015 Innovation Sandbox winner for Most Innovative Company, being named CRN’s Top 20 Coolest Cloud Security Vendors for 2016, SIIA NextGen winner 2015, Most Valuable Product in Computer Technology Review CTR MVP Awards 2015, and CRN Top 20 Coolest Cloud Security Vendors For 2016 – and more.
